Part of the Nova Range
The starting point in our die cutting range with a huge range of uses and applications across manufacturing industry. Also known as clicking presses or clicker presses.
These machines are safe and simple to operate with the operator having only to place the material on the bed of the press, position the cutting tool on the material and press the twin, operating buttons. The beam descends under hydraulic power to cut the required cut shape from single or multiple layers of material.
To assure maximum access and visibility, the swing arm can be easily moved (or swung) to one side by the operator in order to gather cut pieces and re-position the tool for the next cut.
Did you know?
That these machines are often known as ‘clicker presses’ due to the historic way of cutting patterns in the shoe industry? Originally, leather cutting operatives used to produce cut parts by using a hand held knife which they would run around a pattern or template. These patterns had a brass edging to protect the template and as the blade ran round the brass edging it produced a clicking sound. Hence the operatives became known as ‘clickers’. With the development of swing arm presses to do this job, the machines became known as clicker presses or clicking presses. The term remains in use to this day.
